Authentication Services


Various Malaysian government authorities, business organizations, and educational institutions may request for authenticated documents before they are accepted. The High Commission will ONLY authenticate documents that have been issued by/or have the seal/stamp of a Maldives government body.




  • Attest copies of the original documents.


  • Issuing an authentication letter verifying the details of a document which is in Dhivehi language (Eg:- Birth Certificate and Marriage Certificate)


  • Authenticate the signing of a legal document to be used for legal matters in the Maldives. (Eg:- Power of Attorney or an Agreement).


  • Issuing verification letter (relationship letter) stating the bona fide status such as verifying your relationship to a family member.



High Commission does NOT:

  • Attest to the authenticity of the contents of the document. (Eg:- we verify that a power of attorney is signed by the person, NOT attest the contents of the statement which provides the legal rights to a specific person).
